    San Lorenzo hindi ko kayang gawin ang ginawa mo dahil wala akong kasing laki ng yong pananampalataya. Sana kung dumating man ang ganyang pagkakataon sa akin ay mapawi ang aking takot at magtiwala kay Hesus na ating Panginoon.

    I am a Filipino and i am so proud that i am a Filipino because of St. Lorenzo Ruiz.
    If i have the same scenario what St. Lorenzo experienced, i will do it too! For the sake of my love to God the almighty. In tagalog: "Sobrang hinahangaan kita St. Lorenzo, ikaw ang aking inpirasyon sa pagmamahal ko sa ating Panginoon." "I deeply admire you St. Lorenzo, you are my inspiration of loving our Lord God"

    Thanks to this article..
    God Bless us..

    Great article of information about Saint Lorezo Ruiz. I just found out through my church today , 3-18-2012 at 7:15 mass. This is a good wake-up call for those non-believers about sainthood. I myself will make my faith stronger than ever. As i witness miracle after miracle, day after day for almost 30 yrs. now, this lenten season of 2012 is the most glorious of all. My daughter Jamie, will turn 30 this coming may 28.She was born with pseudo obstruction decease.She continue to survive through home iv fluids day in and day out.From Tuesday last week to Friday 3-16-12,the great miracle of Jesus Christ happened after powerful prayers from me, my wife,sister, brother and close friends.It was darkness, when her central line went bad, but Friday the luminous lights shined upon us , when the brilliant doctors of vcu mcv hospital thru gods guidance was able to removed the old one, and replaced it with a new central line for IV fluids.I call this a M-I-R-A-C-L-E in front of our faces. Thank you LORD once again.
